Note: NTIA is to national government as FCC is to general public. The common point between the two is the State Department.

Hey, it could happen! Nice slogan though: "Security isn't thin"

In any case, here are my notes about the tool and, to start, code to push the info into a MySQL database. Like most of the rest of the wiki, it's unfinished work but it should give at least a couple of you a good place to start from.
I'll add more as I redevelop it or re-discover old copies. I guess there can be such a thing as too many backups...

In any case, I'm going to try a slightly different approach.
The short version: I will when I feel like it.
The slightly longer version: I will blog when I have something to write about. The format will not likely change, I'll still point out interesting things and, on occasion, vent about some boneheaded stunt.
I just want it to feel less like work.
If someone else wants to join in by adding in their own entries here, give me a yell. We can work something out. (I do have a few guidelines though.)

Consolidation of resources can be a good thing. It allows for easier management and cheaper operations.
However, past a certain point, it can also be a bad (or very bad) thing. Consolidation of resources without taking into account operations like security or unique organizational requirements (e.g., specific data sets) is poor practice. While collections of smaller (and diverse) systems are more expensive to manage, the overall operation is more flexible and much more tolerant of failure.
Think of it this way --> over the length of your lifetime, which do you think you'd be more tolerant of: 100 paper cuts or 1 accident with a guillotine?

There are a serious number of flaws in the logic and I get the impression that he's paraphrasing to justify his logic.

So now I'm torn. Is ZDNet's article on suicide hackers completely silly because the attack is so far-fetched (the attacker doesn't get matyrdom because he doesn't die) or is it likely to occur and succedd for the same reasoning?
